Conservation District Corner

(This page was updated September 19, 2019)

Kansas Conservation Districts are proud to be leading the way in promoting soil health.  Soil health is the key to the future productivity of agriculture and the production of our natural resources.  The overall goal continues to be increasing conservation on the ground by bringing people together in locally-led soil conservation efforts. 

By focusing more attention on soil health and by educating the public about the positive impact healthy soils can have on productivity and conservation, we can help farmers and ranchers feed the world more profitably and sustainably, now and for generations to come.
